Brian Desormeaux left us on Saturday, July 18, 2020. Born James Brian Desormeaux on March 18, 1966 in Marrero to Floyd and Leona Desormeaux, Brian has made New Orleans his home since 2003.
A graduate of Catholic High, and having earned two Bachelors degrees from LSU, it was through serving others as an EMT and Paramedic that he found his true life’s calling.
He inherited his mother’s love for animals and caring for others. He was always there when his friends or family had a need, armed with his quick wit and comforting hugs. We know he is watching over each of us, and may we keep his compassionate spirit with us and go out into the world to carry on his legacy of caring for others. Brian is preceded in death by his mom, Leona Ortego Desormeaux, and his uncles Clyde and Sammy Ortego.
He leaves behind a wife of 20 years, Wendy Anderson Desormeaux; his father Floyd Desormeaux; his brother Joseph Floyd Desormeaux (Jennifer) and nephew Gabe; and two God children, Jennifer and Chris Auzenne.
A memorial service for Brian will be held at a later date.
